Advent 1 - Year B
1 Corinthians 1:3-9
Thanks be given on this day of commercialized thanksgiving – we are not lacking any gift needed (for waiting or other aspects of growth in wisdom and stature - together).
What we are lacking is strength to affirm one another's gifts and their importance to the whole living process (implying action and waiting and ever so much more). Somehow we have lost the gift of connecting gifts (Christ being strengthened among you, so to speak).
Rather than counting your blessings on this day, try acknowledging and counting the blessings of another and all together (we are called into fellowship).
